a love letter

With so much gratitude, I offer the Earth…

The Architecture for Planetary Procreation! – a new algorithm for a future internet that is fully aimed at serving the input and output needs of the whole planet.

It’s both a pattern for evolving our stories and visions of a better future, in a healthy, emergent, decentralized way, and also a design for organizing an entire planet’s worth of life’s offerings and requests, in a healthy, democratic, centralized way. It’s a grand architecture for categorizing and directing content of all manner, for the most effective use, in the form of a noosphere, aka, a global nervous system!

Here’s a video explaining a bit about the purpose of it.

And here’s an updated version of the Maslow 2.0 hierarchy of needs which describes the next level of detail for the architecture process.

It’s time to play!

Want to join me?

The Big Picture:

My big goal that is getting very much closer, thanks to generous donations, is starting a non-profit community resource hub with resident artists, techies, and educators all working with the community to find creative solutions using available resources to serve the needs of the community members freely and unconditionally so that everyone can be their best possible selves. I’m currently (Summer 2018) starting to seriously look for (very cheap) property, ideally an old farm, probably in mid-coast Maine, and seeking folks who can help figure out the legal stuff of starting a non-profit or whatever, and putting the property into a trust so that it’s always there to serve the needs of those who live there.

I’ve also created a Patreon creator account for those who believe that my work is valuable and who have an excess number of banking points (aka $’s, £’s, ¥, or whatever).

We can use our old stories to tell new stories, and make new habits by choosing to engage in practice work that prepares us to create, explore, dream, and do, in more effective ways when we are faced with life’s bigger challenges. And the more regularly we choose to play with these rituals of connecting with ourselves and others in meaningful ways, the more comfortable we can become as we navigate through the flow that is a robust and rewarding life.

TWTS – Fake Fake News

TWTS – Episode 71 – Fake Fake News

You only get fake answers when you ask fake questions. Fake answers are great when we are looking for some nice fiction, but when we want more honest, meaningful, personal, and important answers with which to make crucial decisions about the world, then we want the fake fake news, aka., the real news.

So how do we ask questions that lead to the best, more useful answers?

Ask everyone to Speak Up about the stuff that gets their blood flowing, so to speak.

Best Things (Loves): What most precious people, places, and things in the universe do you most value and want to take good care of?

Challenges (Losses): How have you struggled, or are struggling, with being able to protect the people, places, and things you love?

Purpose (Dreams): What do you most want to create and/or explore in this vast universe? (Eg., stuff for taking good care of physical bodies, for creating heathy living spaces, for building healthy communities on a larger scale, and for generating the most flourishing global culture possible.)

Needs (Hopes): What basic resources does your body most need in order to continue to work on your life’s purpose effectively? (In general: inputs of high quality food, water, air, warmth, light, information, and outlets for expressing the body’s excess solids, liquids, gases, and energy.)

TWTS – Who Haven’t You Asked

TWTS – Episode 63 – Who Haven’t You Asked

.

I have a saying “Who haven’t you asked yet?” I guess it stemmed from my quest for answers about how to grow healthfully, and how to deal with anger, after realizing that both I and my beloved husband were so very angry. I found my best answers by looking in all kinds of weird places. Leaving no stone unturned, as they say. By listening to so many different types of individuals, instead of just the ones who were similar to me, I found some really unexpected perspectives which led to some great solutions.

We can form questions in different ways to get the attention of different kinds of individuals, who have different perspectives on the subject. These can be anything from different parts of our own brain to other animals, vegetables, minerals, and whatnot that we encounter in our lives — anything that happens to have some kind of information that we might not have, or haven’t yet tried to apply to our current problem we’re trying to solve.

Here are the kinds of questions that we can ask, in chronological order, as we seek to achieve a goal and encounter a problematic something or other (X):

Physical (Negative/Past): What caused X?

Emotional: What do others think of my theory about what caused X?

Intellectual: How does my theory fail to predict reality?

Philosophical: What IS reality (here and now)?

Physical (Positive/Future): How can we work WITH reality (to achieve our goal)?

.

What do they know?
Did you ask them?

(Oh, and inertia was the word I was looking for!)

a meme for mother Earth – #mymostpreciousthing


(click on image for a larger version for sharing)

Starting from high above and slowly zooming in on our planet you will naturally find a person, place, or thing to rest your vision on, something that seems to be the most cherished out of all of the rest of the world for you.

What is your most precious thing?

Feel free to share the image and/or your story of your most precious thing with anyone and everyone, so that we can all better see the treasures surrounding our lives which we most want to protect, preserve, and help flourish.

Love,
Turil

I also spoke about my most precious thing in the special podcast last Solstice. My beloved David. Happy Birthday my honey!

My own reflection of what I’ve lost, an introspection on the past decade of my life, without my beloved husband and without a healthy community that supports my basic needs for food, water, air, warmth, light, information, and the freedom to express myself fully.

I’ve used this loss to define myself and my goals for creating a better world. I hope that you can explore your own losses and define yourself with them so that you, too, can clarify your goals and ideals for what you want to do with your life!

Namaste

The Grand Solstice of Life on Earth

In the grand procession of the Earth, we not only move through yearly seasons of life – the emotionally expressive Summer, the intellectually introspective Fall, the philosophically/spiritually deep darkness of Winter, and then the explosively passionate and playful and productive Spring – but we move through these stages on personal and cultural levels as well.

So, in this cultural, seasonal, and maybe personal time of Solstice pausing and reflecting, I suggest that we consider sharing our stories of loss, so that we might better understand who we are and what we most value in life, so that we can slowly come back together – after so much fighting, and then dividing and retreating from one another – as a larger, more collaborative, more compassionate, more connected, whole.

With Gratitude,
Turil
